Front-rower Tatafu Polota-Nau enjoyed a lengthy career in Super Rugby with the Waratahs and Western Force before moving to Leicester Tigers after the autumn internationals in 2017.

Born in Western Sydney and a former Australia Schools international, hooker Polota-Nau played for Greater Western Sydney Rams and Parramatta Two-Blues at club level and earned the distinction of winning a first cap for Australia as a 20-year-old before he had even played at Super Rugby level.

Known as a powerful ball-carrier and fierce tackler, Polota-Nau made more than 140 appearances in Super Rugby and in 82 Tests, including World Cup campaigns in 2011 and 2015 where he played in the final against New Zealand, before heading to the northern hemisphere.

He ended his first season at Tigers with 16 appearances for the club and then played for the Barbarians victory over England at Twickenham.
